A delicious festival

by Flávia J.

The 'Comida di Buteco' is back. The 9th edition of the famous gastronomic festival begins next Friday, 11th April, with 41 bars from different parts of the city participating. Like it happened in other years, bars are judged by customers and receive prizes for their food, quality of service, cold beer and cleaness.

There are also shows programed for the 31 days of the event and another edition of the 'Art in the Bathroom', with local artists exhibiting their paintings in the bathrooms of the bars. The 'Festa da Saideira', a big party to celebrate the end of the festival, will take place on 17th and 18th May.

This is a great time to visit Belo Horizonte and try the local traditional food of our 'botecos'!
